Dresser Makeover: Take Two

I don't know if you remember this beauty.

I got this from craigslist when I first moved to Indiana two years ago. It cost me $35.00.



It was a weird greenish brown color. It also was a weird wood that had almost a vinyl finish on it.
We added two coats of buttercream paint and new hardware.




Then we moved to Florida and I changed the coloring of my room a bit. With another few coats of paint on the dresser and the hardware we have a whole new look.

 The color is slate blue.
 My husband made the frame for the mirror above the dresser. We got the glass free at a yard sale.



 We painted the knob heritage white.


There is one thing I don't like about it. The top poly coat is not even at all. We used polyurethane in a spray can. DON'T make our same mistake. Get the stuff in a regular can and apply it with a brush. You can see some of the top is shinier then other parts. Oh well....we live and learn. I'm sure I'll be either getting a new bedroom suite in the future or giving this bad boy another facelift.
